Caption: Nerve cells. Computer illustration based on a fluorescence light micrograph of nerve cells (neurones) from the human brain. The cells here are mainly pyramidal nerve cells, having a tri- angular cell body with several dendrites leading from their bottom edge and one long axon extending from their apex. Dendrites gather information for processing by the cell body. After processing, information is passed on through the cell's output process, its axon. At lower frame are several astrocytes: non-conducting star-shaped cells which supply nerve cells with nutrients and may store nerve information. Pyramidal cells are found mainly in the brain's cerebral cortex.
